Signing Day: Top 25 Recruiting Classes

BY foxsports • February 3, 2011













Avg. Star Rating for Top 20 Commits - 4.0

Headliner: #4 QB Kiehl Frazier - - Springdale, Ark.

For the second consecutive season Auburn's highest ranked
commitment comes from the state of Arkansas. In 2010 it was running back Michael Dyer, a key cog in
the Tigers' BCS Championship run. For the Class of 2011 it's quarterback Kiehl
Frazier (6'3/215) of Springdale, Ark. Auburn has done a magnificent job of
capitalizing on its big season and carried its momentum in to January and should
continue right through signing day. Since the calendar flipped to 2011, Auburn
has added eight commitments to date, all but one of which a member of the Scout
300. Athletic cornerback Jonathan Rose (6'2/180)
could be an early contributor on the Auburn defense next year and running backs
Quan Bray (5'11/175) and
Tre Mason (5'9/185) should
be in the mix to help Dyer carry the load at running back. It's been a big
Signing Day for Auburn garnering decisions by 4-Star defensive backs Jermaine Whitehead (6'0/183) and Erique Florence (6'2/185) and the prize of the
class, Scout's No. 1 offensive tackle and No. 2 prospect regardless of position
Cyrus Kouandjio (6'7/295). Kouandjio joins Christian Westerman (6'5/295) to give Auburn the
No. 1 offensive tackle and No. 1 offensive guard in the country. Auburn added
another 4-Star prospect on Signing Day with a decision from defensive tackle Gabe Wright (6'4/300). There are reports from
Scout's Kristen Kenney that Kouandjio might not be a done deal to Auburn, so the
Tigers' hold on the No. 1 spot could be temporary.
